The New England Patriots would move the third overall pick for the right price, though they haven't received a suitable offer yet, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo report.

The Patriots and Washington Commanders, the latter of whom own the No. 2 selection, have received phone calls for their selections, Rapoport and Garafolo add. However, the Commanders haven't indicated they're interested in trading out. The Las Vegas Raiders are among teams that have called Washington, according to Garafolo.

Patriots director of scouting Eliot Wolf said earlier this month that his team is "open for business" in all rounds of the 2024 draft.

New England has multiple needs across its roster with the most obvious area being quarterback. Jacoby Brissett and Bailey Zappe headline its depth chart at the position following the trade of Mac Jones.

If the Patriots stay at No. 3, they'd be in a position to take a potential star at quarterback. USC star Caleb Williams is expected to go first overall, but there's uncertainty about who goes second; signal-callers Jayden Daniels and Drake Maye are the two most speculated names.

The Patriots are entering their first draft under head coach Jerod Mayo.
